Explore Research at the University of Florida: Michael Dukes, associate professor of agriculture and biological engineering, describes UF's research into smart irrigation controllers. These systems use collected information to control when and how much plants need to be irrigated. A typical plot (0.2 to 0.25 acres) of irrigated land can easily use 100,000 gallons of water a year, so timing water use with plant demands results in better efficiency. This research has been so effective it has shown as much as a 50 percent reduction in water use for plants. In this case, UF's research is saving money and conserving water.
